  1. Development of a sensor for detecting Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning toxins

    SBC: SeaTox Research Inc            Topic: 842

    Paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) due to consumption of contaminated shellfish is an increasing problem is the coastal waters of the United States, particularly in New England and the Pacific Ocean. The symptoms of PSP include vomiting, diarrhea, shortness of breath, confusion, and loss of coordination in both marine animals and humans. In severe cases, PSP toxins can cause respiratory failure a ...

  2. Tofu-tolerant mariculture: Genomics-Assisted Breeding of a High-Quality Marine Finfish for Enhanced Performance on Sustainable, Scalable Soy-based Feeds

    SBC: Kampachi Farms, LLC            Topic: 811F

    Reliance on fishmeal and fish oil is a significant constraint to aquaculture expansion in America, and globally. As U.S. marine fish farming expands, genetic improvements could increase economic performance and decrease ecological footprint. This is critically important to sustainability, scalability and profitability of the industry, and is key to attracting capital investment. Commercial opportu ...

  3. Enhanced Oxidative Dehydrogenation of Ethane with Facilitated Transport Membranes for Low Cost Production of Ethylene

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 17a

    Ethylene demand is expected to increase by 50% domestically and worldwide over the next 5 years. Much of this and future growth is likely to be met from shale gas based ethane. Dr. Anne Gaffney of the US-DOE has invented a mixed metal oxide catalyst, M1, for the oxidative dehydrogenation of ethane (C2- ODH) to ethylene at high conversions and very high selectivities. A major hurdle for commercial ...

  4. Flux Monitoring on an X-Ray Refractive Diamond Lens

    SBC: Delaware Diamond Knives, Inc            Topic: 05d

    Synchrotron-based science has had a great scientific impact and will continue to have great impact going forward. In spite of the large investment in the 3rd generation light sources, most beam lines do not preserve the source’s phase profile or brightness all the way to the sample. For these high brightness light sources, errors are almost completely due to distortion ...

  5. Design and fabrication of the “SiREAD”- Silicon photomultiplier REadout, Automated calibration and Detection: A low power, low noise and high performance waveform sampling chip for high channel

    SBC: Nalu Scientific, LLC            Topic: 24b

    The detection of individual charged particles, photons and neutrons and estimation of their properties, momentum and direction of arrival is the basis for a wide range of scientific and commercial applications from high-energy, nuclear and astrophysics to medical imaging and diagnosis. We are targeting the data acquisition market for medium to large size scientific experiments in Nuclear Physics, ...

  6. Novel Low Cost Two-dimensional Atomically Precise Covalent Organic Membranes

    SBC: NCO Technologies LLC            Topic: 15a

    Reducing the amount of carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels has been identified as one of the most important and difficult problems facing our society. The post combustion CO2 capture from flue gas is particularly challenging due to the relatively low pressure (1 atm) and high temperature (~70 ºC) of flue gas, and its small CO2 concentration (

  7. TAU Enterprise: Intuitive Performance Problem Identification and Resolution

    SBC: ParaTools INC            Topic: 02b

    The Department of Energy and other federal agencies have made significant investments in high performance software engineering tools, yet these tools still lack advanced problem identification capabilities. At the moment, users must rely heavily on their own experience and intuition to interpret software performance data, identify the root cause of a software performance problem, and ultimately re ...

  8. High Oxygen/Nitrogen Selectivity Membrane

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 12d

    This program develops a novel membrane module which produces low cost oxygen enriched air. This program will 1) reduce energy requirements for small or medium size furnaces by up to 60% and 2) provide high CO2 concentration exhaust streams for enhanced concentrating of CO2 for CO2 sequestering.

  10. Robotic Additive Manufacturing Path Planning via HPC

    SBC: Tucker Innovations Inc.            Topic: 02a

    Robots can drop pieces of plastic or metal in a pattern to build something but new software is needed to make the path the robot needs to follow. This work will build software that runs on high performance computers to determine the correct printing paths for the robots.
